Is Blucora under- or over-valued?

Valuing Blucora stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Blucora's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Blucora's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Blucora share dividends

We're not expecting Blucora to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Blucora's shares ever split?

Blucora's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 12 September 2002. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Blucora shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Blucora shares which in turn could have impacted Blucora's share price.

Blucora share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Blucora's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.21 up to $18.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BCOR.US volatility(beta: 1.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Blucora's is 1.6822. This would suggest that Blucora's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
